Performance

I really am satisfied with the quality of this printer, after using an HP 2840, this machine blows it away for ease of install in Vista, also seems to get the first print out faster. I had an earlier Minolta color laser, which did not perform nearly as well. Only negative is the toner is pricy, and that is not a problem as my page count is always very low.

-Fred quote

One would think that a system architect should be able to set up a printer with minimal instruction. I read and ignored all the reviews where people struggle with the setup of this printer. I assumed they were idiots... well I must be an idiot too, I should have listened to the reviews. I guess I will be on the phone for hours trying to get through to the technical support to set this thing up. Hmmm maybe I need to take a day off of work (that really makes this printer cost effective) After 4 hours of attempting to filter through the 6 million different languages the instructions this printer came with, I am giving up, and grabbing a beer. It looks pretty, and I can print a test page via USB. But I need it to work on my network. After I assign it a static IP, I can't even PING it. Oh, and the Network config software that is provided in a cluster of 3 CDs and mutiple languages, does not work with Vista, it just crashes and laughs at you. The manufacture just gives you globs of executables to install, but its up to you to filter through them and figure out what works and what doesn't. I shoulda just got an HP or Samsung - something I can plug in, and configure. But the printer looks pretty. Maybe I'll have a couple shots of Scotch instead after dealing with this piece of junk. Most of the drivers crash on Vista. ---so the message is, the instructions are non-existent, and they throw hundreds of files and readmes with caveats at you. A printer install should not be this difficult.
